December 12 – Annual Christmas Party (2nd Tuesday)

Our Christmas party is not held at the library. Instead, one of our members, Kathlyn Smith, opens her beautiful home to us and we gather for a joyous night of fun, food, and fellowship. We also announce our Flash Writing Contest winner at the party, present award certificates, announce our NightWriter of the Year, and install our new officer board. It’s a great night and is open to all NightWriters.
